California Rental Sliding Into Ocean


A group of California apartment-dwellers have gotten a bit more than they bargained for with their ocean-view abodes. The residents of 330 Esplande Avenue in Pacifica, Calif., were evacuated on Thursday amidst fears that their cliff-side building is about to slide into the Pacific.

The building's dramatic perch has been slowly eroding for years, with efforts to slow the process caught up in a tangle of red tape and finger-pointing among the street's various building and land owners.
